That looks nice, Tobias. Thanks to everyone who commented on this. I think we do similar normalization in the engine for the lookup, but not in the search. You'd know if the NASB on the the live swordweb site allows a word click at one of these locations with a letter suffix and it still produces a result. I'm on my phone right now and can't easily try. Great work everyone!
